If you’ve been spending all week cooped up in a dull, lifeless office, you’ll probably want to spend your weekends out exploring the great outdoors. Whether you love to camp, hike, or fish, nothing can you get you in touch with nature better than a good side-by-side UTV.
Side-by-sides give you the kind of power that you need to conquer the tough off-road terrain, while also maintaining an incredible amount of mobility, so you can maneuver, even through hard-to-navigate areas. If you’re going to be taking your side-by-side out on a camping trip, you’ll need a few accessories to get the most out of the experience.
One of the first things you should look into getting for your side-by-side is UTV racks. While side-by-sides have significantly improved cargo carrying capacity when compared with standard ATVs, you’ll definitely want to have a little extra storage space so you can bring all of your camping gear with you.
You’ll need somewhere to store the tent, a place to hold your packs, and, most important, a place to store the beer cooler. Make sure you’ve got a reliable storage rack installed on your side-by-side so that you don’t have to worry about carrying all your gear in the passenger seat.
If you’re planning on camping deep in the woods, you’ll definitely want to make sure that your side-by-side has a good lighting system installed. While your headlights are good for road or trail driving, in the wilderness you’ll need to keep an eye out for other hazards. Make sure that you have a lighting system that will keep your road illuminated.
